|Jack Benny's Golden Memories of Radio - buppyj|
6 LP boxed set from Longines Symphonette in the late 60's or early 70's (no date on package) hosted by Jack Benny and Frank Knight, this material focuses mainly on the 30's and 40's.

|''The Frank Sinatra Show'' - May 5, 1951|
I had previously uploaded about 24 minutes of this, but finally, I can upload the whole episode I have of "The Frank Sinatra Show". As You'd assume, it's a musical-variety series. In some ways, despite Frank's many talents, this show is a bit of a mess when compared with some other high-profile star series of the time. Guests include Dagmar and June Hutton. At first I thought this was one episode and a partial episode, but it seems to be a complete episode...
